Mother Goose for Grownups  (1900) 
by Guy Wetmore Carryl
Mother Goose for Grownups is an anthology of Carryl’s humorous light verse, published in 1900 by Harper & Brothers, New York and London. These poems are parodies of the old traditional Mother Goose nursery rhymes. The volume was illustrated by Peter Newell and Gustave Verbeek. The dedication was a poem “To Constance”. The author added this foreword:

I have pleasure in acknowledging the courteous permission of the editors to reprint in this form such of the following verses as were originally published in Harper’s Magazine, the Saturday Evening Post, and the London Sketch.
G. W. C.
